Fullers Mill is an enchanting and tranquil waterside retreat spanning seven-acres.
Fullers Mill – one of Perennial’s gardens
It combines light dappled woodland with a fabulous collection of rare and unusual shrubs, perennials, lilies and marginal plants, collected by the creator of the garden, the late Bernard Tickner MBE. Bernard spent over 50 years designing and making the garden, working particularly with plant form and texture in addition to colour, to build a garden of truly year-round interest.
In 2013, the garden was gifted to Perennial, the only UK charity dedicated to helping people in horticulture. Whilst there, treat yourself to tea, coffee and delicious homemade cakes in The Bothy Tea Room, pick up a souvenir gift or take a bit of the garden home with you by purchasing one of the plants propagated on site.
